Famously, one is "not born a woman, but made." But what is she before?

This year-long film series will explore the power, precarity, and politics of "girlhood" through popular mythologies of "the girl" in narrative arts and visual culture. Each evening's feature presentation will feature a brief introductory program of opening remarks, film shorts, and/or selected readings.
